BAJ is currently producing, performing, and recording for Noisy Tony Music & Publishing and other artists. He also leads his own instrumental quartet, Kinetic Maschine.
From 2002-2005 he was the co-founder, bassist/producer and band-leader for CrossTones - Live Concert Radio Show and for CrossTone Productions. During the CrossTones era, BAJ recorded and produced 17 full-length live CDs with the artists who appeared as guests on the show.
All of BAJ's 6-string basses are tuned from 23.12Hz so its a 'loooow jammie' thing, baby! How low can you go? His faithful 4-string acoustic contrabass Hattie Belle and his battered, beloved vintage Fender Jazz Bass® Maxine (Macki) Louise are tuned standard.
